She wanted to feel the unusual, she just wanted to get it all out, she wanted to see if it will ease anything. The love of the new human growing so strong everyday inside of her, the strength, the bond are all that keeps her going. Why the bar? She wasn’t even drinking, she wouldn’t do anything to put her tiny one in danger. The day she would look into his eyes, to tell him how having her love alone won’t make me different but also different and strong in the best ways. The loneliness he had occupied with his warmth and growth everyday. There sat a stranger staring at her without blinking. “don’t be scared baby, he doesn’t know you are my guardian angel” she said to her baby.
He was staring at her, he couldn’t see beyond her face to the chest area. He wanted to see the body that completes this face of a goddess. She was just too beautiful, calm and worried at the same time. Why was she there? he wondered” He noticed she wasn’t drinking something hard because from his end, he could see the glass with something infused in it like cucumber. The bar is a drinking place, why would the bartender served her cucumber water? Why was she worried? He wanted to see her body so bad as the bar is a one place to meet depressing and heartbroken people just like him.
She wondered why he was staring this hard. She doesn’t need anyone around her and her baby. Though he doesn’t look like every other men here. Well they all have this charming look till they show their real self “she thought” He has being sipping from one shot for almost 30minutes. He called the bartender, he whispered softly to him. The bartender was smiling but he was looking surprised.

She was smiling, he was smiling too but the stranger from the other side wasn’t smiling, rather confused. She stopped smiling, looked over to the stranger and said her thank you. She didn’t touch the drink, she picked her purse, paid for her cucumber water. She stood up, as she turned around to pick her Jacket, she saw the stranger standing in front of her but his eyes were fixed on her belly. She had imagined him running through the door with disapointment but he was still standing and now smiling.
He had imagined her to be sexy, hot with a banging body but rather she own a body that belongs to a goddess. The growth of a new being inside her through her protruding stomach was a beautiful image of nature.
He looked over by the bar, the drink was still sitting on the table. Now he understood why.
He helped her with jacket to keep her and the baby warm. He smiled and helped her through the door. he walked her down the block without asking because he knew what her worries were.
